SARATOGA SPRINGS — Locally based equine artist Sharon Crute has signed a licensing agreement with Mchezo to produce a colorful and thrilling thoroughbred racing themed jigsaw puzzle based on her artwork.

The 1,000-piece puzzle, which will be titled “Into the First Turn,” is scheduled for release in September. It features an action-packed scene where a tightly packed group of horses are angling for position as they race into the first turn at historic Saratoga Race Course. 

“I am so excited to be able to share my artwork and passion for thoroughbred racing,” said Crute,  who lives in Saratoga Springs and exhibits her artwork during the summer meet. “What fun to see my horse racing image made into a puzzle. With so much color and motion, it’s certain to be lively and challenging.”

The puzzle, part of Mchezo’s Depot Street Collection, will be roughly 28” x 20” when completed, and will include a reference sheet with information about the artist and the image.

“Ms. Crute’s artwork truly captures the power and beauty of the thoroughbred horse, and we feel honored that she has agreed to partner with us on this project,” said Ed Bryan, President of Mchezo, in a statement.
